Question about 2002 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

I have a 2000 lincoln ls V6. After driving for a long period of time (about an hour straight) The gears will start to slip. An "E" will appear where a "D" should be for drive. When this happens all I have to do is pull over, turn the car off. When I restart everything is back to normal and runs fine. Took the car to two different garages and both said that the transmission needed the soft parts replaced which would cost about $1800.00. I've done some research and a lot of people say that its the 4-3 spring? When my car acted up this past time I took it to Advance Auto to get a code read on the check engine light and they told me it was the pressure control sylonoid c? Im not exactly sure what this means so could some one please explain to me what this means or what do I need to do to get my transmission back into proper working order? I'd like to get different opinions to find out who is trying to f--k me over & who is really being honest. Thanks for your help!

My transmission slipping in my 2000 Lincoln ls v6. My reverse will go out and my car won't really change gears like it suppose to. What's the problem?

Time to rebuild the transmission & do all the updates
or install a reman with a warantee & hope the updates are done

All your questions are answered in several places on the internet

You can go to You Tube Video & watch it being rebuilt

5R55W or S both the same unit

Once you drive 10 miles knowing it is slipping, you ruin it,
over & done.

When you operate the brakes, does the brake light come on?
If not, then check and/or replace your brake switch (located towards the top of the brake pedal).

If your brake light works, then check the gear shift lock solenoid operation. Check for power to the solenoid, when the brake pedal is depressed and check the solenoid movement. Replace if necessary.

When I start-up the engine and put it in drive, I could feel the car raise up. what happened; it does not do it any more. Lincoln LS 2002 -V6

That feeling of raising up,only happens when your foot is on the brake and you pull up on the Electronic Parking Brake.

Also what you discribe,could be caused by starting the engine and immediately putting it in gear,before allowing the idle to come down.

I never start any vehicle and drive away. Even in warm weather I let the vehicle warm up about three minutes or more and drive slow for a couple of miles ,until it is in closed loop. That's when the O2 Sensor takes over and controls the fuel system. So forget about saving fuel by leaving on a cold engine. That is nonsense and not fact or theory based.
